and huge debt piling up is a major problem. president obama apparently does not belief that last night in his state of the union address he would not cop to being the biggest spending president in history. no, he now sees himself as an investor. >> every dollar we invest in high quality early childhood education can save more than $7 later on. now if we want to make the best products, we also have to invest in the best ideas. now is not the time to gut these job creating investments and science and innovation. we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care. we will invest in new capabilities. even as we reduce waste and more time spending. we need to make those investments. >> bill: 14 times he mentioned the word invest. mr. obama sounding like a morgan stanley broker. now that's obviously a con. massive government spend something out of control, period. here's the proof. 2002, the year after 9/11 when the federal government was forced to dramatically increase spending to protect us, the yearly outlay was just over $2 trillion. it were 2012 yearly outl.a. $3.5 tril

. ought to be more exciting than usual. let's see. president obama's state of the union address last night lasted almost exactly 60 minutes, with not quite 7,000 words. it was a little longer than average in terms of word count. the speech was interrupted 83 times for applause, according to a tally by the national journal. there was no notable disruption in the audience this year, no moment like a republican congressman yelling "you lie" the way congressman joe wilson did during the joint address to congress back in 2009 there was no moment like a supreme court justice muttering a rebuttal to the president from the rows up front the way justice samuel alito did in 2010. there was one moment of the speech, though, last night where you heard something from the room. you heard a gasp from the room in response to something that the president said. >> we should follow the example of the north miami woman named desiline victor. when desiline arrived at her polling place, she was told the wait to vote might be six hours. as time ticked by, her concern was not with her tired body or aching feet, b
